We were part of a tour group so this restaurant was included in our itinerary for lunch. Only problem is it was a pre fixe menu. They started off with smoked salmon which was gross and then an option of chicken or steak. Both were less than appealing in taste and looks. My brother was smart and ordered a Cesar... More

Went as part of tour group - had the upstairs to ourselves. Beautiful setting with piano player playing American cabaret classics. Food was presented well, but not better than anything else we had this weekend. Staff was friendly. Maybe better if you can choose your own from menu?

We have had a tour de force of amazing Cuban restaurants. I expected today's lunch at Café del Oriente to be an "off day" where I could throttle back because the food is not as good. This is the first "government run" operation after eating at all private restaurants thus far. But - WOW! The location is fantastic in the... More

The title says it all. I went here twice and the second time wasnt quite so good, but quite simply, the best food i ate in Cuba.

My wife and I visited Havana and ended up in the lovely square where this restaurant is situated. Being on holiday we decided to sit in the sun and chill out with a beer or two. During this time we then decided on some food and opted for the selection of meats and selection of cheeses. When it arrived there... More

In most of the restaurants the plates and the silverware are very low-quality… Not here… This restaurant has beautiful china beautiful table setting just an all-around elegant building. The food and the service were superb. I had steak…With rice and vegetables. Delicious! I ordered the shrimp... More

We came as a tour group of 15 or so, and they seated us upstairs. The wine flowed, the food was lovely. I had the lamb dish and was very happy.

We ate here on our last night in Havana and it was the "finest dining" of our visit but somehow it left me wondering. The setting is perfect as was the service and I had a wonderful steak. Perhaps it was because we were in a large group that it seemed a tad impersonal but it was a good experience... More

This restaurant was gorgeous inside with elegant bar, linen tablecloths, and beautiful china. And the food and service were excellent!! We enjoyed our lunch here so much that we came back the next evening and had a lite dinner sitting outside on the Plaza de San Francisco. Everything we had was good, and especially the Cuban rum drinks. The fresh... More
